Hazmat Package Definitions

A frequently misunderstood concept surrounding the shipment of Dangerous Goods involves the different types of Non-Bulk packages allowed or required by the regulations governing the transport of Hazardous Materials, both domestically and internationally.

Hazmat packages must comply with regulations published by the United States and the United Nations, and must be tested to insure compliance.  Familiarity with the terms and descriptions of these packages can help Hazmat shippers choose the correct package and stay in compliance with proper regulations.
